The following animation presents a formal and harmonic analysis of the piece.
A lot of students have asked me for tips and tricks to writing better chord progressions. By that time they had already learned about building Major and Minor chords, but when it came to a chord progression – a series of chords occurring in time – they were a bit stuck.
An Introduction to Species Counterpoint C OUNTERPOINT may be briefly defined as the art of combining independent melodies. In figure 1 the lower melody is harmonized by one a third higher - such an arrangement of the voices could be regarded as counterpoint, but there is little or no independence between the parts; for example there is no dissonance between the voices, and both rise and fall together in parallel. However, the arrangement in figure 1a demonstrates much greater independence between its two voices, with movement in one part while the other halts, divergence in the melodic direction of the parts, and with at least some occurrence of dissonance.

(tonal serialism) Comparisons are, by their very nature, delusive. Still, I would like to venture the following comparative statement: classical harmony is to modal harmony what a geocentric world concept is to a heliocentric one.
To identify structural patterns of musical discourse we first need to build a ‘vocabulary’ of musical elements ( Fig. 1 ). To do so, we encode the dataset descriptions by a discretization of their values, yielding what we call music codewords 20 (see Supplementary Information, SI ).

Abstract and Introduction
chord substitution concepts Harmonic substitution is simply about replacing one chordal sound with another, or as I need to think of it, as one color for another.

Kelvin, You actually caught a mistake on the roman numerals!
We will start by transforming the iv degree chord of the A minor key into an augmented sixth chord. Below is the i - iv - V - i progression in A minor:
